Country style business accommodation and conference facilities at Thunzi Bush Lodge

Many guest houses pride themselves on their convenient location – close to airports, business districts and freeway access. However, if you’re looking for less hustle and bustle and more of a “mind unwind” destination, then you need to consider Thunzi Bush Lodge for your next business trip to Port Elizabeth.

Thunzi Bush Lodge offers country style self-catering accommodation 30 km to the west of the Port Elizabeth CBD. With the N2 freeway a few kilometres from the gate of Thunzi Bush Lodge, it is a quick 15 minute drive to the commercial and industrial areas of the city. 

The lodge caters mainly for the traveller, who enjoys a tranquil setting, forest and beach walks, bass fishing or bird watching. Walking trails around the lodge provide access to the dense indigenous coastal forest where many bird species and animals including bushbuck, blue duiker and vervet monkeys can be spotted.

Thunzi Bush Lodge is ideal for those business clients, who would like to get out of the hectic nature of city life and enjoy the outdoors for the afternoon and evening. To clear the mind, they can take a walk in the forest, swim in the lodge pool, bass fish or just enjoy the bird life and indigenous forest from their balconies. 

Trenwyth Pledger, the owner of Thunzi Bush Lodge, says; “We offer a very relaxed meeting facility for up to 12 guests and will arrange team building if required. We are well known for launches as we offer plenty of space for promotional material such as cars and trucks.

“From past experience we have noted that the delegates all enjoy the uniqueness of Thunzi and what the estate has to offer.”

Despite its bush location, there are a couple of restaurant’s nearby, some of which offer an excellent dining experience and others typical pub fare.  Picnic Baskets are also available on request from Thunzi Bush Lodge.

There are six charming and luxurious chalets with private decks, all having compact, fully equipped kitchens, various DSTV channels and air-conditioning. They come in one, two and three bedroom combinations.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every visit to Thunzi Bush Lodge. The staff are exceptionally well-trained and very helpful while the facilities are marvellous!

It is no wonder that Thunzi Bush Lodge have won numerous awards including being a national winner in the accommodation category at the 2016 Lilizella Awards. They have also won a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Award for three years now – since 2014.
